from Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider,
Give that we’re near the close of the day, it’s likely that there will not be any resolution today to the Drew Doughty case. Doughty’s attorney, Craig Renetzky, said he expects a decision to be made within the next 48 hours. Doughty has been accused of sexual assault by a 25-year-old woman, but no charges have been filed. Renetzky graciously returned a phone call today and talked about some of the details of the case, starting with the timeline.
Question: It’s been said that the alleged incident took place on March 1. We’re now at June 20. Why so long? Would that be considered normal?
RENETZKY: “It’s just the Hermosa Beach Police Department being incredibly thorough. They’re interviewing any witnesses. They’re crossing every T and dotting every I. They’re doing an amazing job of making sure that their investigation is complete, that they’re not leaving any holes in it. That’s why there has been no rush to judgment in their case.”
